morning? >> reporter: well, they keep telling us they're doing all right but they're still stunned this. came under the cover of darkness. you can't even see a tornado coming at 11:30 at night but they heard the tornado sirns blaring. no deaths. no major injuries. and look at the majesty of what mother nature did. the back row of this toyota lot come smashing into the front row, the cars smashed like toys and the manager here says david, you can see the path through the third row of cars. it goes through his service center, and into the downtown parts of missouri's historic capital city. >> daylight brought a clear picture of the damage left behind. after the violent tornado with winds that reached an estimated 160 miles an hour. tore through jefferson city the night before. >> you can see the roof off. we have a female that is bleeding. they are talking about possible amputation. >> everything is just shaking. so i am telling my grandmother, i think we need to go in the basement. >> armond cody says he had very

7:08 am
now, leadership contests for the ruling conservative party will soon be under way. one of the leading contenders is the former london mayor boris johnson, who is a firm supporter of brexit. but whoever moves into 10 downing street, their job will be to negotiate that divorce from the european union. it is something theresa may failed to do. and it is something that her time as prime minister will be defined by. >> you can tell it is a very tough morning for her. thank you very much, imitiaz tyab, reporting from 10 downing street. president trump is pushing harder to investigate the investigators. he who started the russia probe. he put out a memo last night giving sweeping new power to his attorney general who is carrying out his repeated request for an investigation. paula reed is at the white house with more on this story. paula, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. gayle, attorney general william barr has already demonstrated his willingness to do the president's political bidding and now he will have the
7:09 am
unprecedented authority to select information to declassify, and that gives him the power to control the narrative, around the origins of the russia investigation. >> this is all nonsense. >> house judiciary committee chairman jerry nadler slammed the investigation into the origins of the russia probe. >> there is no basis whatsoever to believe anybody in the intelligence community did anything wrong in terms of starting an investigation. >> the president doesn't see it that way. >> a phony investigation. based on no facts. based on an overthrow of the president. >> in a memo late thursday, the white house announced william barr can bypass agencies who usually control whether their secrets are made public. barr will now decide what the public learns about the origins of the investigation. it is yet another escalation, as the war of words between president trump and speaker nancy pelosi reached a fever pitch thursday. >> i wish he and his family or his administration, or his staff would have an intervention. >> crazy nancy.
7:10 am
>> he is a mast he of distraction. we will all agree on that. >> she has lost it. >> the president lobbed insults at his democratic rivals, last standing in front of a group of farmers as he announced $16 billion in aid for farms that have been hurt by his so far unsuccessful trade war with china. >> i'm an extremely stable genius. >> speaker pelosi shot back in a tweet. when the extremely stable genius starts acting more presidential, i'll be happy to work with him on infrastructure, trade and other issues. facing a stalemate at home, the president is heading abroad to japan and a friendlier audience. >> prime minister abe said to me very specifically, you are the guest of honor. will is only one guest of honor. >> reporter: the president heads to tokyo later today. but this trip is more ceremony than substance. on the agenda, a state banquet, front row seats at a sumo wrestling match and a trip to a u.s. naval base to honor the troops for memorial day. anthony? >> paula, thank you.
7:11 am
a massive financial settlement appears to be in the works for a series of sexual misconduct lawsuits involving disgraced hollywood producer harvey weinstein. this is a major development in the case that helped launch the "me too" movement. jericka duncan is here. this involves civil cases but how does it affect the criminal cases against weinstein? >> reporter: good morning. weinstein still faces serious criminal charges of rape and other sex crimes in manhattan. he has pleaded not guilty and denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex but this potential deal does not affect the criminal case. "the wall street journal" first reported lawyers for the weinstein company are considering a $44 million settlement. it would provide compensation to weinstein's alleged victims, former employees of his company, and creditors to avoid years of costly and time-consuming litigation. more than 15 lawsuits have been filed against weinstein. and the weinstein company. over misconduct. the settlement would cover many of them.
7:12 am
including a class action suit accusing the company of concealing widespread sexual harassment and assault. plus, a civil suit by new york's attorney general alleging the media company enabled weinstein's treatment of women. the settlement money will reportedly come from insurance policies including those held by his former company. we did reach out to harvey weinstein's attorneys. but have not yet heard back. the new york attorney general's office declined to comment. weinstein's criminal trial is scheduled to begin this september. >> thank you. 15 lawsuits, but we also remember, more than 80 women have filed accusations against him. thank you. the democratic rep cake ubl congo is facing the deadliest ebola outbreak ever. the disease could be spreading to other african countries, making matters worse, the quarter year old civil war is disrupting efforts to treat and contain the outbreak. deborah patta is there this
7:13 am
morning. >> reporter: violence and mistrust are seriously hampering efforts to contain this outbreak. ebola treatment centers like this one are often attacked by militia groups as either too scared or too suspicious to seek medical help. ebola is not the only enemy here. nine people were killed in this village by an armed militia group. the soldiers took the victims to be tested for the disease. it is standard practice. ebola is at its most contagious immediately after death. >> we don't understand what this ebola is, this man says. we can bury the bodies of our people ourselves. >> reporter: a 3,000 strong u.n. peacekeeping force is deployed in this area, to protect villagers from the over 30 armed militia groups that terrorize the community. you can see how thick and dense the jungle is here. this is where the militia hide out, making it very difficult to track them. and now, war-weary residents
7:14 am
have to face down another invisible enemy. ebola. community outreach programs have been launched to educate people about the virus, but mistrust runs deep. usaid dr. clemmer has worked here for over two decades. >> i have never been in a context where they have thrown rocks at the vaccination team and they block roads and loot and pillage our health care facility. >> and they have the tools to fight ebola at its disposal but it has grown useless, as the sick and dying hide in their homes refusing medical treatment. only 50% of people infected with ebola are seeking medical treatment. and they're between 10 to 22 new cases every day. the longer this outbreak rages on, the higher the risk of it spreading regionally, and even globally. for "cbs this morning," debora patta, the democratic republic
7:15 am
of congo. there are new signs this morning that the boeing 737 max will not be flying passengers for a while. the federal aviation administration met with foreign regulate ners ft. worth yesterday to discuss the jet's future following two recent deadly crashes. kris van cleave folk to the faa's acting administrator. he is at dallas/ft. worth international airport with more on this story. a lot of people feel very leery about this plane even when it comes back into operation. what did you learn? >> reporter: good morning, gayle. in fact, would very new numbers about how concerned the flying public is. but as dan elwell was making his ways case to the rest of the world that they should essentially trust the faa when they say the 737 max is safe to play, new numbers show the flying public is leery of the airplane regardless of what the faa says. >> what has to happened for this plane to get back into the air? >> we have to fish our system safety analysis. there will be test flights that have to be done. and when we're convinced that
7:16 am
the the 737 max is safe to fly again, we will lift the prohibition order. >> are we close to that point? >> we don't have a time line. >> countries came to this faa facility in ft. worth, thursday, at a closed door meeting, the acting faa administrator dan elwell laid out the agency's plan for certifying the max as safe. some countries did not attend. a sign the max may start flying first in the u.s. while the world watches. >> none of us will lift the prohibition on the 737 max until it is safe to do so. >> a new study found only about one in five people surveyed would definitely fly on a 737 max in the first six months of its return to service. roughly half said they would be unlikely to get on board. >> so it is important that the faa doesn't regulate by survey, right? we regulate, we're in the last ten years in the united states, 90 million flights, 7 billion
7:17 am
passengers carried with one fatality. >> if the public doesn't think the plane is safe, don't you need to listen to that? >> yes, we need to be concerned, if the public is concerned about it, yes, if that bothers them, it bothers them, but we can't respond specifically to that concern, when it comes to setting safety standards. >> so the faa says no time line, but it is getting increasingly likely that we won't see the max carrying passengers until possibly the end of the summer or even the fall. boeing says it is still working on answering information requests from the faa about the software. the airlines say once they're told they can fly, it will take them four to six weeks to have the planes ready to go. but boeing is already working on its pr strategy to rebuild trust in the plane. they have hired a big time pr firm. but it sounds like they are going to lean heavily on the pilots to build with the passengers and the pilots say they're there for safety and not arm candy. >> i don't think i would want to be arm candy either. the max remains grounded until the fall perhaps.
7:18 am
and meanwhile aaa says three and a quarter million people will fly over this memorial day weekend. how will the grounding affect aircraft operations now? >> reporter: well, so, direct impact will be fairly limited because the airlines knew the plane would be out of service and have pulled them from the schedule. the indirect impact could be, it may have cost you more to book your ticket because there were fewer seats available with fewer planes in service and i would expect the flights to be a little bit more crowded than they otherwise would have been. and keep in mind, the prediction is more people will be flying this year than last year. >> thank you very much. >> boeing's pr team has a real uphill battle. people are very leery. american airlines ceo, and united ceo said they would be among the first passengers to get on the max when it is back. >> well, i will have to see a lot of people fly it before i get on it again. i remember the u.s. was one of last countries to take it out of service which was very concerning after two crashes. but you're right, anthony, this very a real uphill battle. >> indeed. ahead, congress moves to help you pay off student loans

businesses and workers, could bring relief for more than the 44 million americans saddled with student debt. collectively, they owe more than $1.5 trillion. a truly crushing amount of money. ed o'keefe is on capitol hill with a proposal that is finding support from both parties. we will hear more, ed, good morning, what do you have for us. >> reporter: the idea is to have companies provide tax free student loan relief to workers paying off debt, supported by hundreds of democrats and republicans but like most things it is held up by politics and recent college grads looking for help and the companies willing to provide relief will have to wait a little longer. 24-year-old juan navarro works in the corporate offices of fareway a chain of grocery stores based in iowa. he has more than $19,000 left to pay on his student loans. >> didn't really grasp until my
7:40 am
junior year of college where i said wow, i will graduate next year and i will have all this debt. >> he was paying down his debt with the help of fareway, the company has given him roughly $5 thousand to help erase the student loan. >> with the money i'm making, i'm able to pay the interest and get rid of the student loan debt quicker. >> but the benefit is taxed. so fareway and navarro are waiting for congress to sweeten the deal. currently a company can contribute $5,2250 each year tax free for tuition assistance but no such tax break exists for helping workers paying off student loans on degrees they have already earned. a bill working throughongress could help companies do just that. neither the company or the employee would pay any tax on the company. so far companies like starbucks, verizon and hewlett packard support the legislation. the company new balance said in a statement, that if the bill pass, the company will introduce the student loan repayment benefit. all we are waiting for is
7:41 am
federal legislation. >> this gives a win for the student, and a win for the employer. >> democratic senator mark warner and republican john thune are lead sponsors of the bill that would provide the tax break. >> so many students who go to our best colleges and universities work really hard to get a degree and come out and trade in their cap and gown for a mountain of debt and uncertainty. >> the idea is backed by more than 27 other senators and more than 140 members of the house but as the senate it will have to pass as a larger tax bill yet to be introduced. some critics warn while popular, it would encourage more borrowing and higher education costs. >> in the long run, the worst thing we could do is say even more to student, someone else is going to pay that debt and not you. >> why not focus instead on compelling or forcing colleges and universities to just charge less? >> i think that has got to be part of the solution. >> it is not going to solve every solution but we think it is realistic. we think it is something that
7:42 am
could pass. >> even in places as dysfunctional as washington, this could be a no brainer. >> navarro says the benefit he is already receiving has changed his life. >> a little less stressed. a little more excited about my future. as far as i will be out of debt sooner. >> reporter: late last night, we got word that this laelegislati support from ivanka trump, someone known to have sway with her father and she and her team tells cbs news, they believe this legislation will have a transformative effect on students entering the work force as well as workers seeking to advance their careers. we hope that congress can set aside their differences and provide differences. >> what exactly is the holdup? >> reporter: like we said, and it is the tricky thing, it has to be part of a broader piece of legislation that deals with some changes to tax law. there is one in the works. we'll see exactly when later this year it gets passed. but you know, this is a good sign. there are some proposals from presidential candidates to basically relieve all student
7:43 am
debt. this is a signal from both parties at least in congress that this might be a more realistic first step. >> nice they can agree on something, thank you. up next, a look at the stories you'll be talking about today, including barack obama's surprise visit to the ballpark. how it captivated his audience, and proved he still has game. you try hard,

8:36 am
it? >> every time you take on a character or an actor, it is outside of you, and the more i work, the more i do research, the more i get into the head of this man, the more he's invited in and at some point you just trust that the character, osmosis, just sinks into you. and then you own it. then you operate from that point of view. >> the original film network, famous critique of television news in the '70s, fast-forward to today, what is the relevance of the message now? in the adaptation. >> when i was a kid growing up and watching walter cronkite, i always believed that what i was listening to was just pure news. and i believe it still was. but there were decisions being made by producers back then as there are now. you have 25 stories, we can only get to 12, who makes that
8:37 am
decision on what you're not going to say. >> who decides. >> who decides what's new and what's the important news. and you hope that it is altruistic in that decision-making, but sometimes an ideology does -- i believe this is true, so this is what we're going to say. >> you look at the news differently after doing this role? >> i think you can look at it with a little bit of skepticism. that's prudish, you know, prudent, to say that. and i -- i think the point of network is not to put yourself in any kind of tribalistic ideological camp to allow yourself to open up to receive different ideas from all different sources and make up your own mind of what -- >> gayle mentioned at one point you go out into the audience and, like, sit on a -- in between seats with a couple of people. >> i thought you did that just last night. i didn't know that was something

8:39 am
television. >> there is one thing we were talking about in the green room, what is the problem with media today? is it television still as network has or is it now social media? >> well, i think -- i don't think that today is television media can be absolved of the responsibility of being able to put forth honest, good journalism. everyone is under pressure of ratings. ratings and making money. and sometimes you'll see program that is all about promoting that night's shows and things. it is, like, is this news or are we just a promotional vehicle for something else? >> speaking of making money, we got to make some. bryan cranston, thank you very much. >> watch network! >> good luck. >> congratulations on the tony nomination. network is on broadway now. 43 million americans are expected to pack up and go away for memorial day weekend. ahead, why a growing number of them are taking mor
